SWEET Valentine Mug using Cricut Vinyl

Cricut Valentine mug

This Valentine design was created in Cricut Design Space. If you click HERE you can grab the file. (This is the first time I’ve tried sharing a file directly from Cricut. LMK how it works!)

The video below shows the steps I take to get ready to put vinyl ON the mug and how to use transfer tape.

If you need some of the tape and vinyl, below is my affiliate link to the Cricut site.

Cricut Vinyl Test

mug

I am doing a test with Cricut vinyl…the regular vinyl which is like 631 Vinyl NOT 651 (the permanent stuff).

I have heard that it can be used on mugs etc. and will stay on through washings and possibly even through dishwasher washings. We shall see. 🙂

I will report back on the comment section of my youtube video and let you know how it goes!

A follower asked, “How Do You Print and Cut using Cricut Explore?”

Since a YouTube follower of mine asked me (in the comment section) how do you use the print and cut feature in Design Space, I told her I’d gladly create a video for her. Soooo, here it is Helen! If you have further questions, please ask! I LOVE helping people whenever I’m able.

Both Minnie and the text were “print and cut” using two different techniques which I show in the video.

Please share with your friends (if you like the video) AND,  let me know if you have any other questions. 🙂

 

A Lovely Lace Card

Today I used an image from Cricut Access to make this lovely card. I did change the colors up a little bit because these are the colors that I had on hand. I really love using Cricut brand card stock because it just has such a nice texture and weight to it compared to the other card stock that I bought at Joann’s. With the Cricut card stock, everything cuts so sharply and cleanly AND it doesn’t CURL WHEN I REMVOVE IT FROM THE MAT!!

When I assembled this card, I made sure that the little brad did not go the whole way through the card but rather just through the doily and the second layer.

Next up I have to create an envelope for it.

In the meantime, I do have another video on YouTube that I made yesterday – take a look.

(I love being able to use files that I have and change them up into something new!)

Well, well well…… I have just become affiliated with Cricut. Mind you I will continue to give my honest opinion of their products (see for example my opinion of the ‘card’?? or whatever that thing is on my previous video).

That being said, I DID comment on LOVING Cricut cardstock on the above video PRIOR to becoming an affiliate BECAUSE I really do like the product….. a lot. Honestly.

Quilting and Cricut Cardmaking

Today was a lot of fun quilting AND Cricut cardmaking!

The day started with my good buddy, Rachel, coming over! She and I love to get together to work on quilts!  Today was no exception.  We worked on our Blocks of the Week projects.  I got two blocks done and Rachel got three. HUMP. LOL

After working on our blocks, I went back to my Cricut machine and Design Space.  I created  a brand new video on using what we get in Cricut Access in order to create a NEW item.   I took a card that was designed as a Mother’s Day card and turned it into a Valentine’s Day card.  I don’t know about you, but it makes me so happy to use what I already have.  Check out the video below to see how easy it is!!

I LOVE MY CRICUT.

BTW, if you’d like to see some of the photos from today’s quilting, please check out my Facebook page.

Also, I would really appreciate it if you’d share my YouTube channel across social media and like it…if you do 🙂
